The theme for World Thinking Day 2022 is ‘Our World, Our Equal Future’
Celebrated since 1926, World Thinking Day (WTD) is a day of international friendship. World Thinking Day commemorates the joint birthday of the founders of Guides and Scouts – Lady Olave Baden-Powell and Lord Robert Baden-Powell. It is an opportunity for Girl Guides to speak out on issues that affect young women and fundraise for 10 million Girl Guides around the world.
On International Day of the Girl 2020, WAGGGS asked Girl Guides and Girl Scouts under 18 from 100 countries what issues they were most concerned about and what they wanted to change about the world. From this data, we learnt that the number one worry – the environment. And so, the World Thinking Day theme from 2022-2024 will be Our World, Our Future.Download the 2022 Resource Pack!
The 2022 WTD Resource Pack ‘Our World, Our Equal Future’ can be used by all Girl Guides Units, either virtually or in-person. With the activities as our guide, Girl Guides can understand how girls and young women are disproportionately affected by environmental issues, and explore how we could speak out and take action for a better world.
